I did it. In my own kitchen. I always wanted marble countertops and they have arrived. It took me months to find the right slab. I didn’t love the deep gray streaks in the Cararra although the price point rocked. Calcutta, my true love, was just too darn expensive. Eventually I found Bianco Levantina. It had the veining and coloring of Calcutta at the Carrara price. I called for weeks and it arrived one day at 8 AM and I was there on the dock waiting to chose my favorite slabs. By 10 AM, all 30 slabs were taken. Guess it’s the hot thing in Dallas right now.
Here is a shot of the in process update. I changed the cabinet color from the popular creamy BM White Dove to a whiter BM – Chantilly Lace which worked better with the slab. I’m in love with the polished nickel Rohl faucet that shines like a new piece of jewelry. I also need to add sconces over the bar and accessories. But it’s getting so close to perfect.
Am I nuts? Won’t marble stain? While it can, I doubt it. Not only am I a bit anal, but it takes something pretty crazy to do so. Check out these blogs if you have your doubts: Cote De Texas, Casatelli Marble and Petch House.
